Today I want to talk about a tragedy..a big problem in the life of most moslems..
They taught us since we were too young that we should read and listen to Koran (Moslim’s holy book) as much as we can.
They forgot to teach us to contemplate its verses …they didn’t teach us to understand the verses and apply it in our daily life.
Most moslems care only that they read the Quoran several times and they care to keep it in their mind .
But the result is so bad.
Last year in Ramadan month a friend called me on the mobile.She was so happy.She told me that she finished reading the Quoran for four times.After that she completed her call with me and talked about different issues.
The worst thing of that call is that she began to mention bad things about her close friend..about her morals and some secrets that her friend told her.
I was so upset to hear her talking like that.She felt that I am upset.Then she finished the call immediately.
I wonder..how can she read the Quoran four times in one month and then she speaks bad about people..she learned nothing from Quran.She reads it with her lips not with her heart.
When Aesha the wife of prophet Mohammad was asked about Prophet Mohammad ‘s manners (after his death)..she said (He was Koran walking on earth)…
He was honesty walking on earth..
He was tolerance walking on earth..
Fidelity…integrity…cooperation…walking on earth..
Because Mohammad read the Koran with his heart..mind…soul and then with the lips and tongue.
My massage is..
You muslims here and there..instead of reading the Quoran with your lips..read it with your heart and contemplate the verses several times..then apply it in your life.
If we do this..there will be no terrorism..no hypocrisy..not dishonesty among moslems.
You muslims have the best book ever..study it instead of just reading it.
May Allah grant me the ability to study and contemplate every verse of Quoran..Amen.
Thanks for reading.
